BBK Accounts was originally started by owner Jenny Coffin in 1999. The business started as a sole trader in a spare bedroom, and then over time as the business grew we moved into an office (well, many actually over the years), became a limited company, and built a team.
This is the same journey that many of our clients will undertake with their fledgling businesses, and we have first-hand experience to help and guide clients on their way.
Remaining as the main contact point for the business, Jenny is well supported by a great team, currently consisting of Ellie (bookkeeping & VAT), Prashant (accounts), Lauren (admin & compliance), and Dave (trainee). Between us we have many years of experience and a variety of qualifications, including AAT, ACA, IAB, & ICB.
As a business we are big believers in utilising technology to make life easier and more efficient (especially for clients!). Our internal technology is completely cloud based, meaning that we can work from anywhere and the shift to home working during the pandemic was barely noticeable for us. We think it is very important to get clients onto the right bookkeeping software for them, one size definitely does not fit all. Depending on clients’ business requirements, how tech savvy someone is, and what they want to be able to do with or get out of the software, we can work together to choose the best fit. Once we’ve got someone up and running we will always be there to provide system support as often as needed.
Our bookkeeping and accounts services are not just about taking data and turning it into a VAT return or a set of accounts. It’s more than that. The real purpose behind bookkeeping is to provide meaningful figures in a relevant timeframe that helps someone to run and grow their business. That is our aim and to achieve this we have regular contact with all of our clients and encourage everyone to embrace our ‘real time’ bookkeeping system.
Whether you are just starting out in business or looking to change your existing accountancy service provider, we are confident that you will feel at home with our friendly, knowledgeable team.
